Bentong Kali
P.Kalimuthu, 32 yrs, implicated in 17 murders terrorized the capital through violence, extortion and heroin smuggling made headlines when he challenged the police to arrest him. He was gun down, finally but for many Indians he became a folk hero.
Notorious for ragging freshmen in colleges.

........ the seniors ordered a "helicopter spin" by tieing a string between a fan blade and the penis of a freshman and asked him to run around in a spin........ Indians with social woes rag harshly

Another opinion, based on a selective use of mostly American studies on the relationship between media and violence, institutionalised by Consumers Association of Penang (CAP), suggests that the central agency causing the problems within the Tamil community, in particular gangsterism, stems from the Tamils watching Tamil cinema. (M Nadarajah)....... Marginalisation, not Tamil movies, the cause of violence

Many middle- and upper-middle class Tamil/Indian Malaysians hold a view that Tamil schools are practically useless. Students in Tamil schools do not benefit either educationally or economically. And, worse, Tamil schools have become a hotbed for nurturing and sustaining vices and gangsterism..(M Nadarajah)........Is abolishing Tamil schools the solution?

More information about the true nature of the problems of the Indian Malaysians should he researched and solutions identified for effective action, needless to say with political will and committment from the Government.

The whole website is full of stories and articles in negative vein some of which are of questinable accuracy.Reading these articles a foreigner would think that we Malaysian Indians are living as slaves just like those Negroes in the US in bad old days or blacks in apartheid South Africa.To a Malaysian Indian these stories would only serve to demotivate and reinforce the inferiority complex.
